Punctual timing. The tour guide provided a lot of interesting facts and knowledge about the places we visited. The small size of the group was an advantage. We would recommend this tour to everyone who has a free day in Cardiff and wants to get out of the city.

Be forewarned as it involved a lot of walking, most of it moderately challenging. Varies among gravel, rocky, paved, & dirt paths. Easy to slip & wrench an ankle on loose or protruding stones.

We had a wonderful tour with an awesome guide. We saw lots of fantastic Welsh countryside scenery which was the goal. Be advised there is a great deal of walking on this tour.

Riki the tour guide is very professional and have good knowledge about the area. He is also very kind and helpful throughout the trip.

Amazing trip highly recommend it for lone travellers and for families etc
